Santa's Hot Chocolate!

If you have seen "The Santa Claus" you know that he always has the perfect cocoa before bed, thanks to his little elves. 

I used three of my digital sets to create this card...

I printed everything out in Open Office (a free downloadable app, much like Word), combining the elf and cup, and adding the sentiment to the cup. This was printed on white cardstock. I cut out the imagel I ran a piece of white cardstock, cut to 3 x 4.25 through my Big Kick with a snowflake embossing folder. I then layered it onto a piece of 3.25 x 4.5 black cardstock just to create an eighth of an inch frame. The final layer was a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 piece of green patterned paper from the above set. I embossed it with clear embossing powder before attaching it.
I then cut three snowflakes with an old Tim Holtz Bigz Die. I have only found it on Ebay at this point, but you could use any snowflake die for this.
The snowflakes were coated with Waterscape Glitter. I attached them in a triangle pattern on the card. Then I layered the cup and elf over them. The elf is adorned with Margarita Glitter by Glitters Galore, and The fur on his hat is coated with Snow White Floss by the same company.
I did add a strip of the black patterned paper to give the cup somewhere to stand.
The finishing touch is a plaid ribbon bow from my stash, attached with Fabri-fix.

The images in my sets come in colored and uncolored versions. You can find them in TheArtsystamperShop on Etsy.
